Both Ge Xuan’s friends hesitated for a bit before they followed when they saw Yun Jian going to the betting station. The place was currently teeming with people.
Other than watching the race, people usually opted to come here and bet. Everyone liked exciting bets like this. However, all of those standing here at the betting station were men—without an exception. Women usually did not come to place bets, so those present at the betting station were all guys.
Yun Jian became the center of attention once she came. Judging from her looks, it was obvious that she was young. Everyone there could see that she was a mere teenager.
“Ay, little girl, you’re here to bet too? Go home while it’s early. Only adults make bets here. Off you go, go play somewhere else!” One of the men who was lining up to wait for his turn waved his hand at Yun Jian when he saw her coming over.
The man was most probably bored, so he had the mind to tease Yun Jian when she came over. It was also to gain others’ attention so they could see that a teenage girl was actually here to place bets too.
As expected, others looked over at Yun Jian when they heard the man. Even the staff of the betting station saw her and could not help stepping out to coax her. “Girl, the bleachers are over there. You got the wrong place.”
The others averted their gaze at the employee’s words. If the young girl was here by mistake, that was understandable. It would be shocking if a young teenager like her was really here for bets. These were all they could think of when Yun Jian made her way to the front of the station.
The men who had reeled their gazes back in could not help doing a double take on Yun Jian and looked astonished. Was this underage girl really here to make a bet?
As they wondered, Yun Jian tugged her rosy lips into a light smile.
“I’m betting,” she said and pulled out a bank card from her pants pocket to gently place it on the betting table.
Once they heard that Yun Jian was making a bet, they could care less about her cutting the queue. What was wrong with this world? How did a young teenage girl come here to place bets?
As soon as they thought about it, Yun Jian spoke again. “10 million. On the red Ferrari sports car over there.”
Yun Jian pointed at the Ferrari that was getting ready for the race some distance away. Ge Xuan was already waiting at the preparation area. The next round would be his round with Brother Guang.
Nonetheless, when Yun Jian said “10 million”, people around her gasped. 10 million? She said 10 million! Goodness, did they hear it right?
Those who were lining up to place bets were either bosses of small-time enterprises or young heirs of wealthy families. Some were workers without much money but were here for entertainment. There was no limit to the bets but the highest record here was only several million. At least, those who were standing here right now would bet hundreds of thousands maximum—the majority was betting tens, hundreds and thousands.
The men had already found it bizarre when a teenage girl like Yun Jian was here to place bets but what had she said? 10 million? Was this a joke? Just as they thought it so, Yun Jian’s voice was heard once more.
“Oh, right. I’m betting in US dollars. That’s about 60 million Chinese yuan.”
